The Procurement Process
The Purchase Order Process
To submit a purchase request, please complete The Research Foundation's purchase requisition. The completed purchase requisition is to be forwarded to the Grants Management Office for review and approval.
1 To see if items are on state contract, refer to:
http://www.ogs.state.ny.us/Purchase/Search/default.asp and click on Search Contracts. In the field "Enter Query Below" enter the Supplier(s) name and click Search. If nothing appears, the items are not on NYS Contract. Usually the Purchasing Department will work with the Project Director if a Single/Sole Source Justification is required. (Single/Sole Source Justification is a brief memo that the Project Director must put together stating why the requested items are not available anywhere else or are specific to his/her need. It is usually signed by the department head.)
